The Elkhorn Girls Basketball Team defeated South Sioux City Friday night 61-57 to win the Class B-2 District Championship and advance to the State Basketball Tournament. The Antlers will play Norris in the First Round Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. at the Bob Devaney Sports Center . . . home of the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Elkhorn had to come from behind against the SSC Cardinals as they trailed 30-22 after one half. The Antlers cut that margin to 46-41 by the end of the third quarter and took their first lead of the game midway through the fourth quarter. Elkhorn was very efficient from the free throw line from that point on as many different players went to the line and made free throws in the final stanza.
The District Championship was Elkhorns second straight as the Antlers won a Class A District Title last year to go with this year's Class B Crown for the first back-to-back District Titles for the girls since 1987.
Go to Lincoln and support Elkhorn.
